CNN Reveals The Real Reason Trump Is Mad At Corker – Prepare To Laugh Your A** Off

-

Trump went on a petulant little rant against Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker on Sunday morning following the news that Corker would not be seeking reelection in 2018. At a time when nearly every single seat in Congress is precarious, Corker’s announcement came as quite a shock to the GOP, but no one responded more childishly about it than the president of the United States.

Of course, there’s much more to this story.

The feud began when Corker defended Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, both of whom have been criticized by Trump. Corker described the two men as “people that help separate our country from chaos” under Trump’s incompetent leadership.

Trump may want to pretend now that he never cared for Corker and was intelligent enough to see him as a problem way before now, but a few members of Congress debunked Trump’s lies about the collapse of Trump’s relationship with Corker in no uncertain terms.

Not only did Trump offer to endorse Corker before he questioned Trump’s competence, he continued to do so after.

According to USA Today, who cite Congressional sources who are unauthorized to speak publicly about the matter, Trump is being far less than honest with his childish antics on Twitter regarding Bob Corker.

‘The president called Corker last week, asked him to reconsider his decision to retire, and said he would endorse him, according to two people in Congress who were familiar with the call but not authorized to discuss it publicly. These sources said Trump told Corker several times — before and after his decision not to run — that he would endorse him and campaign with him.’

This is quite a different story than Trump gave his followers on Twitter. The tweets are just more of a pattern of pretending that no one breaks up with Trump because he broke up with everyone else first…except he didn’t.

‘Trump’s response followed a pattern of rebuking former allies by noting that he rejected their pleas for help.

‘In July, he accused MSNBC talkers Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski of turning on him after he rebuffed them at his Mar-a-Lago resort. And when CEOs started to resign en masse from presidential commissions over his response to a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, he said it was because he had lectured them on moving jobs overseas.’

It looks as if The New York Times will need to update that cover list of Trump’s many, many lies.
